FOR SOME, it's a start. For others, a restart. Yet they all have the same target, even if the odds are likely working against most of them. The Flyers opened their developmental camp yesterday at the Virtua Center Skate Zone in Voorhees. Twenty-nine prospects will go through the 6-day experience, which includes drills and instruction and the annual Trial on the Isle in Stone Harbor on Monday. How many will ever make a dent at the NHL level - prominent or otherwise - at some stage in their careers remains to play itself out. But at this point, none of them thinks they can't.

ALTHOUGH HIS TIME with the Flyers ended well before he could have hoped, Claude Vilgrain's impact on Philadelphia hockey was beyond anything he could have ever imagined. As the first black player ever to play a game for the Flyers, Vilgrain suited up during the 1993-94 season for only two games before the NHL experienced a lockout one season later. If not for the 1994-95 lockout, the right winger thought he would have spent a lot more time wearing an orange-and-black uniform. "I was hoping that I could play there many, many more years," Vilgrain said of his time spent in Philadelphia.

The start of summer has not been good to the Flyers. Their captain, Claude Giroux, spent a night in jail last week after a bizarre incident in an Ottawa bar. Their new general manager, Ron Hextall, was hamstrung by the team's salary-cap situation and could not join the free-agent frenzy. And while the Flyers were signing spare parts - some for depth, some for their AHL affiliate - most of their Metropolitan Division opponents made improvements. So where will the Flyers stand when the season starts?

The Flyers re-signed winger Jason Akeson on Wednesday and traded winger Tye McGinn to San Jose. They also added a pair of unrestricted free agents - defenseman Nick Schultz and winger Andrew Gordon - who figure to be spare parts next season. Late Wednesday night, the Flyers also signed unrestricted free agent Zack Stortini, a 6-4, 214-pound forward, to a one-year, two-way deal. Stortini, 28, led the AHL with 299 penalty minutes last season. Yes, it was a busy day for new general manager Ron Hextall.

While many of their Metropolitan Division rivals got better, the cap-strapped Flyers were unable to make any major moves Tuesday when the NHL free-agency period opened. They did re-sign goalie Ray Emery to be Steve Mason's backup. They also signed forward Blair Jones, 27, to a two-way contract. New general manager Ron Hextall claimed he was not frustrated that the Flyers couldn't be big players during the free-agent frenzy, saying sometimes teams overspend and have "buyer's remorse.

UNDER NORMAL circumstances, Ron Hextall would likely have a pit in his stomach if he saw division rival Washington had acquired two top-four defensemen from the Penguins. Tuesday, Hextall likely had to keep from laughing when he saw the terms of their deals. Matt Niskanen, who had one tremendous season in Pittsburgh, signed a 7-year deal for $40.25 million. Brooks Orpik, already 33, cashed in for $27.5 million over 5 seasons. "There's 2 days of the year where hockey people get crazy: July 1 and the trade deadline," Hextall said.

FOR DAYS, or even weeks, the Nashville Predators have been linked to Vinny Lecavalier in trade rumors. Flyers general manager Ron Hextall gave permission to Lecavalier's agent, Kent Hughes, to orchestrate his client's departure from Philadelphia. Nashville, hungry for offense, seemed like the perfect landing spot. Lecavalier, 34, was wooed to the Flyers by Peter Laviolette last summer. He is now at the helm in Nashville. The Predators are thin down the middle in an unmerciful Western Conference.
